Sic semper tyrannis!

This shocking photograph was taken in the small American city of Ferguson, Miss., a suburb of St Louis, Miss.: race riots continue after police shot and killed a black teenager; Ferguson city population: 22,000 people, 60% black; the police department: of 53 police officers, 50 are white. They need the same reformation in policing as we had in Northern Ireland… (not that it makes everyone happy…)…

Anyway, look at those hideous weapons carried by the goons on the right, whose forearms alone are almost as thick as the head of the retreating local on the left. What I want to say will relate to another post, which I haven't written yet.

Supporters of the Second Amendment say that gun ownership is necessary to prevent tyranny, that the government of the day will think twice about messing with you, if you have a gun. This is indeed, a compelling argument, almost touching...

"Gentlemen, do not deliver the severe weather advisory flyer to 345 Knickerbocker Avenue. Mr. Smith has a legally-held hunting rifle, and is known to be a libertarian." 

At times I feel like opening the window and simply roaring with laughter, but I don't want to get shot.
